Twilight Imperium Fourth Edition - 3D Printed Tokens

last updated May 31st, 2023 — created May 31st, 2023

After trying to find a way to offer color-specific tokens that aren't as crazy expensive as laser cut acrylic, we decided to make our own. We experimented with prints to get the quality and color selection that we're happy with and we now have Twilight Imperium Command & Control Token Upgrades available. These sets of 3D printed tokens come with 16 Command and 17 Control tokens in all 8 player colors included in the base game and the expansion (264 tokens). They are comparable in size and shape to the cardboard faction-specific tokens, but are thicker for easier handling. If you have your own 3D printer and colored filament and would rather print the tokens yourself, our insert STLs also include the tokens.

Color-Specific Tokens

We've had some questions as to why we prefer the color-specific command/control tokens over the provided faction-specific tokens. The reason is because your faction's primary representation on the board is your miniatures, which are color-specific. Adding faction-specific tokens created confusion during several of our games, particularly for factions that are similarly colored or those whose symbols are similar.

In the example, the first picture shows use of the faction-specific tokens. It's difficult to tell which player controls each planet and which players have activated systems (even if you have memorized all of the faction symbols) because several of them are so similar. Also worth noting, these pictures were taken much closer to the game board than any player is likely to be sitting. With our color-specific tokens, it's much easier to tell what's going on at a glance. Having said that, we understand that ordering laser cut tokens is very expensive. So we're offering these 3D Printed Tokens for sale and we've also included models in our insert STLs so you can 3d print your own color-specific tokens.


Twilight Imperium Fourth Edition
NEW3D Printed Hyperlane Tiles
We printed these hyperlane tiles to make it easier to setup the Hyperlanes variant if you're playing with 3, 5, or 7 players.
Galaxy Mats
Many players wanted a nice game mat to place on their hard-top table, so we made this galaxy mat and have updated it several times to fit requests.
3D Printed Insert
This insert is designed for optimal setup speed. It has a few setup trays to pull components from, and then all play trays go straight from box to table.
Acrylic Tokens
We designed these laser cut acrylic tokens before we started 3D printing. They're pretty expensive, but awesome if you want that extra flare.

NEWAdrenaline
We were unaware of the new expansion's team bases until after our minis were re-based, but made these 3D Printed counterparts that work with our custom bases.
NEWTabletop Projects
We originally created this to replace a marker in Magic Maze, but it's so great for passing around that we now use it as a generic first person or turn marker.
NEWTyrants of the Underdark
We had a crazy hard time finding short descriptions for all of the decks so we created this one to have a handy reference.
NEWTabletop Projects
We store most of our games vertically on IKEA Kallax shelves for ease of access and reset during cleanup so they set up faster.

World of WarCraft: The Board Game
We created a few fix-it stickers per the Errata listed in the FAQ.
Tabletop Projects
This is what we came up with for the center of a Venn diagram between "Wants a big fancy gaming table" and "Doesn't want to spend thousands on it".
Codex: Card-Time Strategy
Our main design goals were to have them fit in the box without rolling/folding, have a low-profile patrol zone, and have a large play area.
Runebound Second Edition
We made an expansions icon reference sheet so we could easily see which content belongs to what expansion.
StarCraft: The Board Game
We designed skirmish boards with magnetic legs allowing them to be placed over the game area to resolve table space limits.
Chaostle
This is our approach to character skill reference labels. They are designed to be adhered to the backs of your character cards.
Alchemists
We didn't like playing on the shallow shelf that folds out of the cauldron pieces, so we made deeper shelves out of a bit of foam core.
HOPE
We had some questions and the only FAQ we could find was in French, so we compiled all the answers we could find into one printable booklet.
Legacy of Dragonholt
We don't track the entries that we go through, so we decided it'd be a lot easier to have all our story tracking on one sheet.
WarCraft: The Board Game
We wanted to have a token to track the first player, so we tossed this one together.
Earth Reborn
We drafted a 3D model of the vacuum insert tray based on the measurements file from Ludically.
Alchemists
We adjusted the sheets, bought some minimal-border picture frames and wet-erase markers, put it all together, and now have reusable boards.
